Nebraska Head Coach Bo Pelini
Some see Bo Pelini as a crass, rude, boorish jerk of a man.
Others see a defensive genius.
Some see both.
Regardless of how you view Pelini, he knows how to cripple an offense and that’s what matters.
In this conference averaging 28 points can mean a near-guaranteed double-digit season win total.
That means with proper talent, Pelini has the chance to rule the Big Ten with an iron, scarlet-tinted fist.
He just has to actually take advantage of opportunity while it's knocking.
Pelini’s defense prides itself on tradition.
A tradition built on pain and sacrifice.
The blue-collar, lunch pail type of tradition that the Big Ten loves.
This conference is perfect for a man like Bo Pelini.
Perhaps that will help his blood pressure come college football Saturdays.
Still, thanks to these reasons, Nebraska will have its opportunity to shine in the Big Ten, to topple both the leaders and the legends, and to finally see a BCS bowl for the first time in a decade.
